ACEN Board of Commissioners Election Opens April 1, 2017 Through May 31, 2017

The 2017 ACEN Board of Commissioners election will begin on April 1, 2017. Votes may be cast until May 31, 2017, and newly elected members will take office October 1, 2017.

The Nurse Administrator, as the ACEN-accredited program representative, will receive an email from Big Pulse, a third-party election vendor that the ACEN contracted to host the online election process. Though this email is a legitimate communication from the ACEN, it may be identified by some email filters as spam, so be sure to check for the email in your inbox folder, junk folder, or spam folder. The sender on this email will appear as “ACEN 2017 ELECTION,” and the email will provide a link to the 2017 election ballot as well as general voting instructions.

Voting privileges are assigned to programs rather than to governing organizations. Each accredited program will receive one vote. Nurse administrators of multiple programs will receive a separate email for each ACEN-accredited program. Please do not disregard these multiple emails as duplicates.

Please contact Stephanie Larson at (404) 975-5002 if the email(s) is not received.

Please take advantage of this opportunity. Your Board of Commissioners are the individuals you elect to represent you in important matters such as making accreditation decisions, setting polices, and setting fees. Thank you for your participation in the election process.
